Advent is a time of waiting. It is also a time of preparing for the coming of Jesus. Here is a simple but powerful prayer that will draw you closer to the Lord everyday of Advent. Plan to use it all year long and comment at any time on how it made a difference in your life.
A Daily Check-in
You have been present with me
In my life today
Be near, now.
Let us look together through your loving eyes.
When did I listen to your voice today?
When did I resist listening to you today?
Everything is a gift from you.
I give you thanks and praise.
For the gifts of this day,
I ask your healing in,
I ask your forgiveness and mercy for,
Continue to be present with me.
In each day of my life.
